The Jake and Bull Mountain loop is great entry level D4 hike.  The trail has a good variety of incline and decline in elevation.  This hike has good views of nearby mountains, streams, ponds, and open meadows. 

It is recommended that you bring a pair of water shoes to change into for the 2 stream crossings towards the end of the hike.  Both crossings are about 10 feet wide.  One is ankle deep and the other is knee deep.  We will stop to change shoes at each crossing.

There is a porta-potty at the trailhead.

If you plan to meet at the event, please be at the trailhead at 8:20 AM.



Required Items to Bring:

Lunch, water.

Water shoes for 2 crossings towards the end of the hike (1 ankle deep and 1 knee deep)

Small towel to dry feet after water crossings

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

Hiking poles are entirely optional.

Change of footwear.
